I really enjoyed the action packed plot found in this book. It was very entertaining and vivid. I've got to say that at first, I thought I wasn't going to like the story because Max comes off as this non-alpha guy who can't even defend himself. He's portrayed as rather weak and you might roll your eyes and ask yourself "really?" a few times at the displays of just how weak he is. Once we get to know his story, it makes a little more sense. The way he was with Stone in bed was also muy sexy. ...more
Viral Justice had the making for a great read for me. Biological warfare is scary and has the realm of really happening so I’m always curious on how an author will put a spin on it. Action, adventure, intrigue swirling around romance and the possibilities of scary what ifs. It was a good read, except for one thing that killed it for me.

The premise is this: Colonel Max heads up the Army's Biological Response Team. He’s responsible for identifying and destroying possibly biological hazards and we

It's always an adrenalin filled, heart thumping ride when reading one of Julie Rowe's Biological Response Team stories. This one is no exception. I adore this world Ms Rowe has created, with great characters, deadly weapons and fanatical enemies.

Max is likely my favorite hero of all three books I've read so far. He is such a great character. I accidentally read a review which criticized Max as being a beta hero with Ali being the alpha of the two. I disagree. Max might not be a pumped up, ass ki

I have to say the Viral Justice was an interesting read. When you start throwing biological warfare into the mix, it does get kind of scary. I haven't read the previous books, but I felt I wasn't missing too much. Anyway Max and Alicia are trying to contain a problem in the Middle East that spell the doom of the world if not contain.

Basically, these two have the hots for one another, but don't want to get involve with one another fraternizing is looked down in the milit

LOVED! All the things I like about this series were back in full force. Another deadly virus unleashed and the Biological Response Team along with the Special Forces soldiers who protect them are trying to stop it and find a cure.

The leads in this one were in a bit of a role reversal. Alicia Stone is General Stone's daughter. She is one tough woman who is a Sergeant who trains soldiers for the Special Forces Combatives program. Her strong will and never back down attitude along with being woman

Another book with a G.I. Jane kind of story, where the heroine is the one being lethal! Yeah!!!

This is even better than the first book I've read in this series (Deadly Strain)!!!

Here we have Maximilian's and Alicia's story! It's excellent! Action packed, thirlling, at moments touching, but always exciting!

What is appalling here is that something like this could have been happening time and again in real life!!! There're so many terrorists running around playing God that's plain scary!!!

I enjoyed

Woah! VIRAL JUSTICE may just be one of the most terrifying romantic suspense books I've read!

U.S. Special Forces consultant Sergeant Alicia Stone is frustrated, in more ways than one. She's charged with protecting Colonel Robert Maxmillian, the government's biological warfare doctor, from terrorists who've placed a massive bounty on his head. Max is dedicated to saving lives, but the man can't seem to shoot his way out a paper bag. Plus he's hot, and completely off limits as her superior. Eventu

Review Copy from the Publisher


Viral Justice is the third volume in the Biological Response Team series following a special US army team specialized in biological attacks. I really liked the two previous volumes and I made a grab for it as soon as it appeared on Netgalley. I can say I wasn’t disappointed even if some details didn’t convince me.

The basic idea is that in this team, each scientist must teams up with a soldier responsi

I received this book from Carina Press via NG in return for an honest review

"Human beings had a great capacity for stupidity."

Rating- 4 stars

This book was really good, so intense but really good.

Before i jump into the swing of things and write a little rendition of the plot, I just want to say that this book is very much of an adult romance. Thus, while it was a superbly written and - (wait, i can't give too much away yet!) It did make me blush and feel a bit embarrassed at some points.

I received a complimentary book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

I have just finished reading this book, and the only thing I can think of to say is, “WOW!” This is a book that definitely kept my adrenaline going throughout the story. The action never stops from the beginning of the book until it ends. In fact, I had trouble figuring out places to stop so I could eat and sleep.

This is the story of Colonel Robert Maxmillian, head of the Biological Response Team, and his bodyguard,
Viral Justice was one thrilling edgy romantic suspense that kept me up all night reading. I have been a fan of Julie Rowe's Biological Response Team from that start and its just fantastic that each book is unique from each other and yet remains addicting until the last page. The theme of biological warfare and war and terrorism in general is well plotted, tightly packed and intense but always with that a dash of lightheartedness on the part of the main characters interactions with each other, ...more

If you liked the movie Contagion you're gonna love Viral Justice, the third book in Julie Rowe's Biological Response Team series. A standalone novel with familiar faces from the previous two books, Viral Justice takes the reader to the Middle East, where Colonel Robert Maximilian and his bodyguard, Sergeant Alicia Stone are on the front lines of the biological warfare being waged by extremists.

I haven't read all the books in this series, but I did read Lethal Game. It gave me some insight into Max, but I really think this story could easily be read as a standalone.

The Biological Response Team is a semi-covert division of the Army which is tasked with detecting, preventing, and reacting to biological warfare. Max is the head of the team, and Alicia is his newly assigned bodyguard and trainer. Alicia typically trains the best of the best, however Max's skills are anything but. His inte
Unusual in a way that features an alpha female and a more 'beta' guy, 'Viral Justice' continues Julie Rowe's saga on biological warfare waged in the villages of the troubled regions of Afghanistan and the Middle East, which is slowly but surely spreading to the Western world.

In the centre of the action is Colonel Max, whose dangerous job requires him to have protection and unlike any other alpha soldier, can't lift a finger or shoot to save his own life. Like Sophia Perry and Connor Button, Max

The Biological Response Team is heading out on another life-death mission

This is the 2nd book I've read in the BIOLOGICAL RESPONSE TEAM series. I liked the first one - DEADLY STRAIN - more but this was still an eye-opening read.

I really enjoyed the first two novels in the Biological Response Team but I found this was to lack the same punch as the others. Alicia Stone is the body guard to Colonel Maximillian who worked hard to get where she is at and wont take crap some anyone even her superior's. Colonel Mazimillian hates violence will not raise his hand to anyone even if they threaten to kill him and wants to cure the world. Where the other two books focused on the adventure this one seemed to focus on the mutual ...more

Another great book in the series tons of action & suspense.Ali needs to be in control but her latest assignment is putting her on edge. She needs to protect Max but he can't even look after himself. She respects him a scientist and really likes him but he needs to learn to protect himself.
They are about to be tested to their limits and so many will die before they get back home. A madman had created a deadly strain of flu and he will kill millions if it gets airborne.

This was a solid read to me but in comparison to the previous titles, this wasn't my favorite -- I found DEADLY STRAIN to be the strongest of the three personally. However, VIRAL JUSTICE was still great -- I just starred it in reference to my other reviews in the series. This time around, it's Max's turn, and with him is another military person, Ali -- daughter of General Stone. The bio-weapon this time? The flu. I really liked Ali's fierceness and found her to be a great lead and opposite for ...more
My Bookbag by Karen
For the most part, I enjoyed this read. It had an interesting concept and a lot of action. I enjoyed most of the back and forth between Max and Ali. I liked the fact that Ali was such a strong female character, and I loved the way she didn’t take any crap from anybody.

I thought that the book could use some more editing and proofing. There was a lot of repetition in ideas, scenarios, and dialogue. In addition, there were quite a few grammatical errors.

Overall, I liked the book. Readers who like l

So, I didn't feel the connection between Max and Ali quite as well as I did in the main characters of the previous 2 books in this series. When they first jump into bed together it felt a little jarring to me. I do like both the MCs in this book and did like them together eventually. I enjoyed how the overall story arch of the series progressed in this book. We actually got Grace and Sophie from previous 2 books on the page briefly at the end of this book.

Max et Alicia se connaissent déjà, donc l’attraction entre eux est présente dès le début, même s’ils essayent de ne pas y céder. J’ai trouvé qu’il y avait une belle alchimie entre eux, et on voit bien leur acceptation progressive de leurs sentiments. Le virus est le plus dangereux de la série, et l’intrigue bourrée d’action m’a tenue en haleine jusqu’au bout.

On The Edge Of Your Seat Reading!

This is the 3rd book I've had the pleasure of reading by Julie Rowe. I stumbled on to the first by accident and quickly followed up with putting this entire series into my e-reader!
I love the complexities both the main characters bring to the table. It made for an unforgettable read and kept me in good company during a very long airplane ride!
3.5 stars ARC Review

I really felt the weight of the medical details in this one. More review to come.
Absolutely amazing. This book was a great addition to the series and a real page turner. I never wanted to put it down. Left me wanting more and I'm hoping there's more.
